One gun-control argument I’ve always had trouble understanding, never more so than now, is the idea that millions of citizens armed with pistols and rifles as a bulwark against tyranny might as well give those weapons up because they’re no match for a modern military with tanks and planes.

I hear this one a lot.

"Citizens equipped with modern assault rifles are not match for a modern army" so you might as well give up the rifles

It is really hard to have a meaningful discussion with someone that they would put forth such an argument.

It is really hard to believe that someone could be so stupid as to believe that the citizens would be better off fighting a modern army with NO weapons?!
